A great place for a family vacation. The house was exceptionally clean and very accommodating. The owners thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. They are very attentive and care about their renters. We loved meeting them and hearing about the house history. We especially enjoyed the pool and having a pool house and TV in every room is a definite plus with young children. Would highly recommend to all types of gatherings.
A wonderful vacation spot near the beach with an amazing private pool!
We loved our stay at this property. Adequate sleeping for 12 (including pull-out sleeper sofas in the living room and in the pool house) and those pull-out mattresses were recently replaced. New flat-screen TV's in every bedroom, the living room, the sunroom and the poolhouse was a great touch. There was a small flat screen TV in the poolside gazebo, but the satellite signal was too weak for more than few channels.
The best feature by far was the beautiful in-ground pool and the poolside gazebo. The gazebo has a ceiling fan providing a nice breeze, especially after a dip in the pool. The gazebo is big enough for 12 or more to relax, with plenty of additional outdoor seating in there. Adirondack chairs on the gazebo porch are perfect, as well as four chaise lounges out by the pool.
The kitchen was adequate for preparing great meals. The extra fridge in the poolhouse allowed for storage of leftovers and cooling of beer/wine/soda. Great touch. There is even a mini-fridge in the poolside gazebo which was great to keep cold beers and waters right by the pool. The owners have really thought of it all.
The pool has a shallow end (maybe 3 to 4 feet) and a roped-off (buoy float rope) deep end that is 8 feet. Great pool, with carpet over the cement around the pool to keep your feet cool.
The yard and grounds are beautiful. The circular driveway allows plenty of parking room. The yard has a grassy area back by the pool perfect for kids playing, yard games, etc.
The central air in the house and poolhouse was great. We had extremely hot and humid weather and we were comfortable all week, and the pool was the perfect touch after a return from our daily beach trips.
The deck just outside the sunroom offers a large table and chairs with lots of shade from two beautiful trees. Perfect for al fresco dining.
5 minute drive to Bethany Beach with lots of parking near the beach every day (we used the Parkmobile app to pay for parking...no more quarters!)
Our only issue during the week was a dishwasher that wouldn't drain (the previous guests apparently thought a dishwasher was a disposal...gross.) The owner was easy to reach and did his best to make the situation right. We just washed by hand all week.
We've stayed in the Rehoboth/Bethany area for over 20 years, and we all thought this property was fantastic. We hope to be back!
This place was perfect for us!!
The pictures do not so this place justice!! We loved the pool!! All new updates tvs, beds were comfortable, lots of room and there was 11 of us there! Only thing I'd like to see added is a fence around the property. It is right next to a busy road that people go super fast on. We had a 2 year old and 4 year old and I was a worried mess about them running around the front of the house all week!
First the house was overall ok.
We were a medium sized family. Kids adults and older adults.
The kitchen was a little cramped, but it had a lot of utensils, cookware and dishes. The sun room off the kitchen was beautiful. We used it all day everyday.
The couch in the entryway was very used and was in need of a cleaning. It could not be used as a bed. Not comfortable.
The bedroom off the kitchen was good, especially if your traveling with anyone with disabilities and can't go upstairs. The other room with the long sectional was damp and smelly. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable and could not be used as a bed. The springs were almost out of the cushion.
The bathroom off the kitchen and off the entryway was great. Clean and open. The washing machine and dryer worked well.
Now the upstairs.
All three bedrooms were clean and good.(FYI owner) If you need more beds, the master bedroom would work very well with 2 sets of bunk beds. The master bathroom was clean and spacious.
Now the best part of the house, the pool.
First, please tell people or put on the pool the depths. Little scary that it was so deep. We enjoyed that pool everyday for hours. Someone did drop by and put in some tablets. The pool house was beautiful but the bed was not useable. Again the bed was on its last legs, springs popping. The sofabed also had a baby bottle under it. And the microwave in the pool house did not work. I tried 3 times to warm up some tea. It makes all the noise without any of the heat.
The other sunroom by the pool was beautiful and very appreciated. We used it to put music on.
Pros - big home, great bathrooms and a great pool. Each bed had a plastic cover and we felt more comfortable with it. The bbq's were great. Everything is within an hours drive.
Cons - every tv was too small, not enough useable beds and we did have a problem with flies. No matter what we did flies would get in. Overall I can't say we would use this property again, it needs some updating.
Thank you for this feedback. After reviewing this information the mattresses on the sleep sofas will be replaced with a memory foam style mattress. The microwave in the pool house will be replaced. Everything gets shampooed before the season starts (carpets and upholstery). We are not aware of anything being damp or smelly in the living room but we will keep an eye on it. TV's are being updated throughout. We hope this information is helpful for future travelers. We strive to maintain our home to the highest standards!
Great Family Experience
The pool makes this rental more than worthwhile. So clean, private. It was perfect. No big complaints about the house. It was clean and had a lot of space. We just wished that the space was more open but that wasn't a big deal. The location of the house was great too. It was just a 10min drive to Bethany Beach. About 30min to Ocean City, MD. We'd definitely consider coming back again.
